    I have a 15 year old son who just lost his chicks and is very heart broken [​IMG] . My Husband and son spent the weekend building a coop that even the craftiest Racoon will never be able to get into. We are looking for any Cochins. Wyandottes, Silkies ,Brahmas ,or Barred Rocks. that someone is willing to part with. If anyone has any birds available (even 2) we are willing to pay a more than fair price and are willing to travel 2 hrs from Danbury Connecticut. Any help PLEASE

    We lost the birds do to a very determined racoon that no longer lives in this neighborhood.

    There are alot of chicken people in CT. I hope a few of them on here see your post. In the meantime have you tried putting an ad in your local feedstore? Or www.craigslist.org
    I am sure something will come through so your son can fill his coop. Good Luck.

    Hi, I'm sorry about the loss of your son's chickens. I don't have any girls to offer but I'm giving away 2 brown leghorn cockerels that are about 3 months old if you're interested. I live 45 minutes from Danbury. If it's girls your after sometimes you can make good connections at the Bethlehem fair. Sometimes people who exhibit there have chickens for sale. It's September 7th, 8th, and 9th. Here's the link:


    Good luck and contact me if you're interested in the leghorns. Jen
